Zounds—just wait’ll you point your pretty peepers at the trippy treasures that are nestling on the cushioned clouds within! They are guaranteed to start your pulses poundin’—your toes a-tinglin’—and send you on a rocket ride of unadulterated joy!! Scan the names of this month’s lucky ticket-holders on the facing page and if your name is among them—just walk right in and claim your cloud! If your name isn’t there—don’t despair, dolly-rockers! Just keep sockin’ those letters to me! If you truly believe that dreams can come true—I’ll be swingin open the golden gates for you soon! And I’m not “a-lion,” either (ouch!)!!
If you’d like to know just how to get here—just read the E-Z instructions below!
What is Dreamsville? Chickadee, Dreamsville is that place way up yonder where dreams come true like they were never fulfilled before—and the pure ecstasy might just flip you out and onto a cloud so high you may never make it back to mother earth again!
If you’re ready to make the trip, hang on—and heed this! Write a letter—a simple, easy, one-page letter—to 16 Magazine telling exactly what special delight you are longing to get from your very favorite teen star. If we possibly can (and be assured: 16 stops at nothing!), we’ll see that you get exactly what you dreamed about!
Hard to believe? Well, then, just take a look at the facing page. Each girl whose name and home town is printed there is a 16 reader who made a wish, dreamed a dream or yearned for something very special—and got it when 16 hauled her aboard our jet express to Dreamsville.
You can wing off to Dreamsville just as easily! Just write a short letter (on one side of the sheet only!) telling what you would dearly love to have. Could be a personal phone call—or a personal letter—from your favorite star. Could be a personal keepsake from your dream guy. Could be a pin-up portrait personally autographed by your grooviest group. Could be a whole set of recordings from the top of the charts. Could be any number of delicious things. It’s your request—so you name it. Jot it down on a sheet of paper and mail it to the address below. All it costs is just one 5¢ stamp—nothing else! Your Dreamsville gift is absolutely free!
Brooklyn, N.Y. 11202
After you’ve mailed your letter, don’t fail to get every issue of 16 Magazine and watch the Dreamsville answers page—because that’s where you’ll see the glorious news that everything you wished for, dreamed of, longed for has come true!
JUMPIN’ JELLYBEANS! Here’s that extraspecial, chrome-plated, customized and classy cloud called The Impossible Dream—Come True! Every month, one lucky 16-er gets something super—something that you’d think even Dreamsville couldn’t supply! Well, we can and we do—anything and everything you could possibly wish for can be found here!!
This month the “Impossible Dream” comes true for MARIA RADICE of NEWARK, N.J.—thanks to jaunty Jeff Neal and ZILCH (your fave popstars’ headquarters for clothing at 217 Thompson Street, New York city)! Jeff phoned MARIA and answered all her questions about the Monkees—cos he’s Davy Jones’ good buddy and knows all the inside info!
Jeff went on a wild spree at ZILCH too! He sent MARIA a passel of prizes—a sweater, a knock-out shirt, a beautiful ackhan jacket, a pair of bell-bottoms, an Indian scarf, a wild ring, a necklace, a mod wristwatch and a couple of bracelets from India! (Jeff sent along a full-year’s free subscription to 16 Magazine too!) Chalk up another triumph for Dreamsville!
